This book had such great reviews I purposefully sought it out when major book sellers, such as BN, didn t carry it I should have taken that for a sign.My biggest gripes about this book are 1 a real editor needs to proof this book a lot and 2 the author needs to do a much better job on researching her facts.For my first issue I will say the flow, writing, building of the story, etc is horrid Thoughts are not presented clearly or reasonably as she jumps all around in her conversation topics between the characters with no indication or background for transition there is so muchwrong with the grammar and flow that if I put it all into words I would have a book for editing this book Any decent editor would have caught all this and had the author rewrite until it was 90% better Had this happened it could have been a really great as it is, it reads as rough very rough draft My second issue has to do with the very apparent fact that the author is English, as is the main character and her close friend, so it makes sense that these two characters to speak the Queen s English BUT NOT THE REST OF THE CHARACTERS in the book The local characters are supposed to have been born and raised in Massachusetts and yet their grammar and mannerisms are also very British English Americans do not refer to trash bags or garbage bags as bin bags pg 137 , we don t say rubbish pg.127 , Piss Off pg 141 , Americans don t go around kissing each other s cheeksthe list of errors is endless I kept wondering where the book was taking place because I knew she wrote that they were in Salem, Massachusetts and yet everyone speaks and act as though they are from Great Britain I forced myself to endure hoping the book would get better but I finally gave up when I reached chapter 16 it s just too awful to continue My best suggestion would be for the author to republish the book after a lot of editing.In the end I realized all the great reviews must have come from family and friends Not a true representation of the quality of the book The author definitely has potential so keep writing, keep learning and find a good editor. This is my Daughters first book in a trilogy.I have read it 5 times and each time is as good as the first Some people may think this is a biest review But if it was rubbish, believe me, i wouldnt have encouraged her to have it published Please give it a try, you will be hooked.
